Hi @kathyv29656185 a couple things to try:
Go to Preferences > Technology Previews... and check "Disable Native Canvas" - then restart Photoshop. Does the problem still occur?
Go to Preferences > Technology Previews... and enable “Older GPU mode (pre 2016)” - Restart Photoshop. Does the problem persist?
I had the same problem as decribed. I followed your instructions and the problem is solved. Thanks a lot.
Worked like a dream Thank you
I don't find my preferences. My english is not so good to translate it correctly into german

If you can't find the Preferences panel, you may be on macOS.
There is a translate button at the bottom of the Reply window.
Thank you 1000x CoryShubert.
The first recomandation solved my problem.
Thank you That's worked it out
Thank you, it works! Older GPU mode (pre 2016)! I will explain in Polish now 🙂 Photoshop migające na czarno biało okno pliku, reszta paneli nie miga. Rozwiązanie problemu to: edycja> preferencje> zapowiedzi technologii> włączyć tryb starszych GPU (przed rokiem 2016)
Just ran into this issue and your solution worked perfectly. Thank you!
HOORRAH!!!!! Thanks a bunch.
I checked enable "Older GPUmode" and that solved my issue. Thank you.
Thanks! Problem solved.
This solution solved my issue as well. Thank you.
This worked for me Thanks:
Go to Preferences > Technology Previews... and enable “Older GPU mode (pre 2016)” - Restart Photoshop
Thanks for the info Cory! I tried the first option, and that seemed to work fine.
thanks sir. workd out for me!
Worked also for me, thanks a lot!
Preferences > Technology Previews... and check "Disable Native Canvas" - then restart Photoshop - worked for me too on Win 10 where the layer would show up oaky but the workspace remained all white (on any file opened directly or through LR).
I got the flashing strobe when "Use Graphics Processor" was selected.
I selected "Deactivate Native Canvas" and that appeared to correct the problem.
NOTE: "Older GPU Mode (pre 2016)" is unchecked, and I'm using Windows 11 with an NVIDIA Quadro K420 GPU that supports DirectX 12.
Thank you for the fix!
Thank you so much Cory!
Thank you. Everything worked out.
